Help Fight Brain Tumors - Support Elizabeth's Hope!
Thank you for visiting this page and helping me reach my fundraising goal!
Elizabeth ("Liz") Minter was one of my dearest childhood friends. Whether it was at tennis lessons in Bronxville or summer camp in Maine, Liz's enthusiasm for life was immediately apparent to everyone who met her. With a beaming smile, gregarious spirit, and infectious laugh, Liz brought joy to all who knew and loved her. When diagnosed with a rare brain tumor - in this case, Gliomatosis Cerebri - Liz fought with every ounce of strength humanly possible, and then some. Though Liz was taken from us far too soon at the incredibly young age of 21, her thoughtfulness and caring spirit live on thanks to Elizabeth's Hope, a nonprofit Liz started with her family shortly after her diagnosis. In the six short years since her passing, Elizabeth's Hope has raised incredible amounts to fund research on rare and inoperable brain tumors, ultimately building up the Children's Brain Tumor Project at Cornell Hospital.
I ask that you donate to help me reach my fundraising goal before the race on Saturday, June 22, in support of Elizabeth and her family. Though she was taken from us far too soon, her legacy will likely outlive us all.
In memory of Elizabeth Minter, Head for the Cure will be hosting a 5K on Saturday, June 22, at the Bronxville High School. All proceeds will benefit Elizabeth's Hope and the Children's Brain Tumor Project at Weill Cornell Medicine. Elizabeth's Hope and the Children's Brain Tumor Project are committed to a single goal: to bring hope to children and families who are confronted with the diagnosis of a rare and often incurable brain tumor. Each year, over 79,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with a primary or metastatic brain tumor. More than 120 types of brain tumors exist, making effective treatment complicated. Cutting edge research is needed as we continue to make strides in this fight. Thank you so much for supporting this cause, and my efforts to continue and further Elizabeth's legacy.
